I love organising events! I started creating and running events for my own company after finishing University. Since then I've worked on experiential campaigns in an agency and worked in-house in a variety of very different arenas: from corporate events through to spontaneous ‘pop-up’ events and everything in between. What I relish most is taking responsibility for the ultimate success of an event and motivating a team to make it happen. In my most recent role, the aspect I have really enjoyed is the opportunity to create a unique calendar of individual events for very different target audiences. I am now ready for an exciting new challenge that enables me to consolidate and build on my varied event planning skills and experience.
